Work with the elements of the Python programming language in the integrated development environment for beginners. Enter simple commands and preview changes in the code, access hotkeys and switch between components quickly, check all function calls, etc.

Thonny comes with Python 3.6 built in, so just one simple installer is needed, and you're ready to learn to program. You can also use a separate Python installation if necessary. The initial user interface is stripped of all features that may distract beginners.

Just press Ctrl+F5 instead of F5, and you can run your programs step-by-step, no breakpoints needed. Press F6 for a big step and F7 for a small step. Steps follow program structure, not just code lines.

Once you're done with hello-worlds, select View - Variables and see how your programs and shell commands affect Python variables.
